Columnist Arianna Huffington was once just another ink-stained scribe. Then, in 2005, she launched her liberal blog, The Huffington Post – which, by 2008, was valued at $100 million. A miraculous transformation? Not really. On the web, Huffington’s story is not that unusual. Many writers, artists, businesspeople and specialists have used online social networks, blogs and other internet tools to develop profitable personal brands. To learn how, read web-marketing expert Mitch Joel’s eminently savvy book. He discusses the “myriad digital channels and free publishing tools” you can use online to promote yourself, your personal brand and your business.

This author stresses that “content is king” and, accordingly, his book has superb content. getAbstract recommends it to CEOs, budding or established entrepreneurs and others who want to leverage the amazing connectivity of the internet.
